Scaling Agile to the Enterprise — Pitfalls and Practices addressed with the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe™)
Presented by: Doug Stewart
Agile is seen, correctly, as a means to achieving better business results while developing Software and in Systems development products. In the small, agile practices and defined methodologies have been supporting good results for over a decade. As practices are scaled to value stream, portfolio, and enterprise levels each organization struggles at the point of including groups like Finance, Business Controls, and Compliance. For the business that is transforming, lack of participation from non-technical groups can impede that transforming – all the while believing they are protecting the business. This presentation will describe practices to address these growing pains with the Scaled Agile Framework and with more traditional agile methodologies.
Attend this session to understand:
- The impact of scaling agile to an organization
- Practices that are used to include all business functions while scaling agile
- How SAFe addresses common scaling issues through the Value Steam and Portfolio
